The #EAPC2022 12th World Research Congress is nearly here!

There are just 9 days to go to #EAPC2022. The EAPC 12th World Research Congress Online has live sessions on 18 to 20 May 2022, and lots of on-demand content – as well as a series of webinars open to everyone (two before the Congress even starts)!  There’s still time to register – and here’s a sneak peek about what you can look forward to…

Open access, free to attend webinars.

We’re pleased to be hosting five webinars before and during the EAPC World Research Congress. You are invited to attend these webinars even if you have not registered for the congress.  On Tuesday 17th May, Joan Marston and Christoph Ostgathe host a webinar on Palliative Care in a Humanitarian Crisis which looks at what we can learn from past and current crises about providing palliative care in challenging circumstances. Also on the 17th May, Sheila Payne and Richard Harding chair a meeting about palliative care EU funded projects including details of five projects that were funded through the recent Horizon Europe call.

On Wednesday 18th May, a session aimed at novice and early researchers entitled ‘Everything you wanted to know about research but were afraid to ask’ has been organised by the EAPC Research Network Junior Forum and aims to inform and inspire the next generation of palliative care researchers. On Thursday 19th May, Augusto Caraceni, Katie Jones and Brenda Dyal present on Critical issues in Opioid Analgesia and on Friday 20th May, Jeroen Hasselaar and Lukas Radbruch present the findings of a recent European Delphi study about ‘Palliative Sedation: How much consensus is there in Europe?’.
